Plan A Fishing Trip To Lake Okeechobee

Yes Lake Okeechobee is a true bass fisherman's paradise. I have a lot of fond memories of visiting the lake for fishing trips when I was a child and I've been back many times as a adult. Because the Bass Fishing at Lake Okeechobee is truly the best in the world. And the scenery in the area is some of the best in the world. Be sure if you have time to plan a day for a airboat ride in the near by Everglades while your in Florida. I guarantee you that your kids or grandkids will remember it for a lifetime.

In case you don't know Okeechobee in Seminole means " Great Water Can Not See Other Side ". And the lake is huge at 730 sqare miles in 5 Florida Counties including Hendry, Okeechobee, Palm Beach, Martin, and Glades County. The lake averages 19 feet deep and it provides a lot of the drinking water for the south Florida area. And most important of all Lake Okeechobee is famous all over the world for its world class bass fishing and other types of fishing also.

There are Fish Camps, Marinias, Tackle Shops, Hotels, Motels, Cafes and Restarants all arounf the lake. You can quite easily find boat and tackle rentals all around the lake and fishing guides are available also all around the lake. Though the western half of the lake is where most of bass fishing action happens. And Lake Okeechobee is known as the best bass fishing lake in the United States.

Keep in mind that Lake Okeechobee is over 30 miles across at its widest so its no small little lake. The lake is the second largest in the USA with only Lake Michigan being larger.Be sure that if your not confortable with operating a boat on a lake this size that you either take someone along on your fishing trip that is or hire a fishing guide. For the first fishing trip or two to the lake it might be wise to hire a fishing guide so you can learn the bass fishing hot spots because if your going after that trophy largemouth bass this is truly the place to find your trophy bass.
